Let's Talk New Mexico 6/11, 8a: June is Pride month, and in the midst of mass demonstrations for racial justice and an ongoing pandemic, this year’s celebration will undoubtedly look different. On this week's call-in show, we look at the black roots of Pride, including the 1969 Stonewall uprising that paved the way for LGBTQ rights today. We’ll hear about the contributions of Black and Brown trans and cis women, and trans people of other genders, in the local and global Pride movement. And we'll ask how the Black Lives Matter movement influences this year’s events. We want to hear from you! How do you celebrate Pride? Email letstalk@kunm.org, use the hashtag #LetsTalkNM on Twitter, or call in live during the show at 277-5866.

A bill that will make it easier for New Mexicans to change the gender on their birth certificate now heads to Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham's desk for her signature.

People would no longer have to prove they had surgery as part of their gender transition. Instead of having to provide a doctor's note proving there was a physical change, the new legislation requires only a signed statement from the individual.
